If I taught a workshop/seminars at ANWG '19 would you be interested?

Mizz B, Triumphant



Mizz B wants to make bookmarks so I suggested she weave them in Summer and Winter.

It just so happened that the Woolhouse Tools 24 shaft loom was set up with a 16 shaft point progression Summer and Winter warp so tonight she came over to test out the concept.

We'd done a theory lesson Tuesday night. She had done some research herself by reading an article on Summer and Winter at http://weavezine.com

Tonight she wove various Summer and Winter treadlings to see how they actually worked. Then she wove the word "Books" into the cloth. You can just see the S and part of the K. By 9 pm she'd done the whole word.

This was her first time using two shuttles, first time weaving with more than 4 shafts, first time weaving a weave structure other than twill or plain weave.

This is the 5th warp that she's woven on. Triumphant. Yes. Oh yes.

Currently reading Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett

Great: a new weaver is born!
Terry Pratchett: it's long ago since I read a book by him. I used to like them. Is this good?

Hurray for Miz. B! She's fortunate to have a teacher like you to guide and encourage her. I need to break out of my rut and try some different weave structures, too.
